We pride ourselves on our child-centered approach to teaching and learning, celebrating the individual talents and personalities of every child. We believe that school should be a fun, exciting place where children can learn in a secure environment and be willing to take risks when trying out new ways of learning. How children learn is as important to us as what they learn.
The development of character is an on-going process, which begins in Nursery, when the Pupils first learns the expectations and boundaries of school life, and continues throughout their time at PCS. Kindergarten staff are the first to help the kids understand about their behavior and its effects on others, about how to work and how to play. Kids are exposed to the different group relationships that they will continue to experience as they progress through the school: from Class, the Kindergarten Level, Primary Level and High Schools. It is through their relationship to these different groups that kids experience the Pastoral Care that helps them feel secure and promotes their well-being, whilst having contact with, and example from other students, across all sections of the school. Active participation in school life, the development of personal responsibility, selflessness, sportsmanship and compassion for others are infused through daily experience.

The Report Card is an official document of school which shows student’s performance per term. It is intended to give the pupils and their parents an idea how well or how poorly they performed in each term.
The school year is divided into three terms. Report Cards are issued by the teacher at the end of each term. Parents may confer with the teacher-in-charge with regards to the development and progress of their child. The report card must be signed by parents and not to be brought home for school reference until 2nd Term. However, report cards will be given to parents for their own purpose/referral during the last term.
